Product Name: Brocade 16Gb/28 SAN Switch for BladeSystem c-Class
Are you looking for a higher performance embedded Fibre Channel switch option for your HPE BladeSystem c-Class enclosure?
The Brocade 16Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class represents the next generation of embedded Fibre Channel switches with 16 Gb/s performance. It hot-plugs into the back of the HPE BladeSystem c-Class Enclosure and its integrated design frees up rack space, enables shared power and cooling, and reduces cabling and small form-factor pluggables. Enhanced trunking support with external switches provides higher bandwidth to enable demanding applications and high density server virtualization. In addition, the 16 or 28 auto-sensing ports support lower bandwidth components for investment protection and an upgrade license enables customers to ‘pay as they grow’. The Brocade 16Gb SAN Switch saves space and cost, simplifies the SAN environment, enables easier deployment and management and delivers the performance required for higher throughput applications.
- New 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel embedded switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class Enclosures
- 16 downlink Internal ports and 12 uplink (SFP+ or SFP) external ports
- Internal Port Support for 8 Gb/s and 16 Gb/s BladeSystem Fibre Channel Mezzanine cards. For specific support details see HPE BladeSystem Fibre Channel Adapters
- Support for up to six switches per c7000 chassis
FeaturesEnables Data Center Consolidation and Cost Savings Through State-of-the-art Design and Performance
The Brocade 16 Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class enables data center consolidation with HPE BladeSystem c-Class enclosures through a state-of-the-art zero-footprint design while lowering cost through shared power and cooling, fewer cables and SFPs and a reduction in space.
Enables support of virtualized environments through industry leading 16 Gb/s Fibre Channel performance. Both internal and external facing ports auto-sense lower bandwidth components for flexibility and investment protection (4, 8 or 16 Gb/s for external ports and 8 or16 Gb/s for internal ports).
Enables High Density Virtualization and Deployment of I/O Intensive Applications on HPE BladeSystems
The Brocade 16 Gb SAN Switch for HPE BladeSystem c-Class offers a non-blocking architecture that supports up to 896 Gb/s of full duplex throughput.
Supports port trunking of up to 8 SAN ports for a total of up to 128 Gb/s balanced throughput. Trunking of the SAN-facing ports with external Brocade or HPE B-series Switches provides a high-bandwidth solution while lowering costs through fewer SFPs and cables.
Enables organizations to better manage data flows and meet service level agreements while maintaining optimized application performance in virtual environments with new Adaptive Networking services, including Adaptive Fabric Quality of Service, Traffic Isolation, and Ingress Rate Limiting.
